PhD Studentships in Computational Engineering “Computational Methods for Flow in Porous Media”, Swansea University
Posted by: admin In: Computer Sciences
The College of Engineering at Swansea University invites applications for two fully-funded PhD studentships in Computational Engineering.
The projects will focus on the development of computational methods for approximation of the flow equations in subsurface reservoirs with complex geologies. The projects will lead to the degree of PhD.
The studentships will be based at Swansea University, in a lively and vibrant research environment, with a strength in computational methods and modelling.
Candidates should hold (or expect to hold) a good honours degree (minimum 2.1) in a relevant discipline (including Mathematics, Computational/Numerical Methods, Physics or Engineering) together with a masters degree in computational (numerical) methods and techniques for solving partial differential equations.
These industrially funded studentships are open to suitably qualified applicants from the UK, Europe and overseas students and cover full fees and a stipend of up to £17000 per year depending on qualifications and experience.
Applicants should apply by sending a full CV outlining their research interests and names and addresses of at least two academic referees to:
Prof M G Edwards
Civil and Computational Engineering Centre, School of Engineering
Singleton Park, Swansea SA2 8PP
or by email to:
Candidates are encouraged to apply as soon as possible.
Please contact Professor Michael Edwards for more information.
